    Recommend me a bike tour company

    I live on the east coast and was consider taking a trip out west and using my legs to do some sightseeing and get some exercise while I'm at it.

    I know there's a number of bike tour companies out there that will do assisted tours for 3-5 nights or so.


    Can anyone recommend any particular company? I'm a 30 year old intermediate biker that bikes 100 miles or so per week currently at a decent pace. I could easily bike much more though if I slowed down the pace and had more time


    I'm looking for an assisted tour in early September where I can stay in a hotel...preferably no camping.

    I've never done such a thing before and really don't know how to being putting this together.

    Any help would be appreciated...thanks!!

    1) Check with your local cycletouring club

    2) Post your question in the Touring forum, there are lots of tourists over there who might be able to help you.

    Cycle Oregon is sold out for this year, but it is in September each year and it is lots of fun.

    Trek Travel is pricey, but first class. They'll include most all food, site seeing, other activies, and about everything you'll need including very nice bikes.
